Question: Hi, I believe I have had an abscess on my anus, this has popped and for 5 days now I have had puss leaking.

No pain now no other effects simply the puss continues to slowly leak out.

Should I take flucloxacillin?

Brief Answer:
No need for antibiotics

Detailed Answer:

No need for antibiotics, you are basically cured, provided the pus stops at some point. If you develop fever, or feel otherwise ill you should see a doctor for complete drainage under anesthesia.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.
